The Diver Diamond methodology
Each of our Specialty Programs is based on our diver diamond methodology
Diver Diamond is the cornerstone of the SSI educational system. It emphasizes the critical components of a great scuba education program: Proper knowledge, Proper Skills, Proper Equipment, and Proper Experience. The diver diamond is the foundation for the Ultimate Dive Experience.
At SSI, they don’t want you to just learn to dive; they want you to become a diver. Their goal is to make every step of your scuba experience all about your comfort and confidence in the water. SSI professionals work together to make learning come alive with personalized instructions that will put your skills to use in reality-based training scenarios. The unique approach is known as “Comfort through repetition”. By practicing each skill learned throughout each level of training your actions to become conditioned responses – second nature!
Repetition ensures you retain what you have already learned while continuing to learn more. As a result, diving becomes more fun.
WHAT TO BRING
While New Zealand Diving will provide all necessary diving equipment, you will need to bring sunscreen, swimwear, a towel, and a change of clothes to each session.
